What do we have here then? Oh just some insanely early WKCR action from back when the show was in it's infant stages and Stretch was still going by the name of DJ Skinny Bones... (quality isn't great for the first few minutes but settles down by the time the music starts) Although tons of tapes from the duo's 8 year run have been posted online these sessions from 1990 have proved hard to come by. Even Stretch and Bob themselves have been asking for them, so this was quite a find.  Shout out to...

This classic Raw Deal episode comes shortly after the name transition from Club Krush. The Tommy Boy crew rolls massive into the studio including Naughty By Nature before their first album (as NBN) hit the shelves. Along with them is Prince Rakeem who, of course, later became Wu-Tang Clan's Rza. Interestingly, while he mentions his "Wu-Tang Slang style," the Wu-Tang crew had not yet been formed by that name. Instead, he was down with the DMD ("Dick 'Em Down") Posse. He...

This classic is a 34 year old recording of the Frankie Crocker breakfast show on WBLS!  Just like Grace Jones' The Apple Stretching, this is a beautiful snapshot of early morning early 80s New York, this time, from 1983. There may only be one Rap tune on this tape, but the recording is about much more than just one track, it's an illustration to younger generations, of how things used to be, as well as bein' a throwback to simpler times for the older listeners. In 2017, so many people are all...

from http://www.normalbias.org/2015/02/20/raw-deal-april-30-1992/ This tape was labeled only “post-Rodney King,” which leads me to believe it aired the day after the April 29, 2002 “not guilty” verdict came in for the LAPD officers in their beating of Rodney King in March of the previous year. Some interesting local and underground stuff played at the beginning of side A and through side B when Tone rolls into the studio with some fresh-out-the-studio DATs. Side A Intro Ed O.G. drop...

There’s a lot of interesting stuff that comes up throughout.  Polo is shamelessly pimping a 1-900 number (1-900-407-POLO) where he’s encouraging MCs to call and rhyme in exchange for a record deal.  He guarantees three rappers will get contracts.  Polo also discusses an upcoming solo album that will feature Eric B., Father MC, and Brand...

The show starts off at 8pm and early on features super dope mash ups, including “Poppa Large” with the “Give the Drummer Some” instrumental, “Top Billin'” with “Real Love,” and “Pass da Mic” with “Hand on the Pump.” During the airbreak at the end of side B, G discusses his trip to New York to visit Stretch & Bobbito’s show and Kool Keith’s upcoming...

(from http://www.normalbias.org/2008/07/14/dj-ran-friday-night-street-jams-july-1-1993/ ) Back in 1993, DJ Ran was known throughout Philly, but hadn't yet reached the nationwide recognition he'd see a few years later when he began appearing on WCW television broadcasts, of all places. This mix is from the July 1, 1993 show Ran did with Don "Mystic" Mack on Power 99.  It kicks off with "Don't Ride Me Now" by Aisha (I think), which is a surprisingly driving track that I don't...

Eazy M was off DJing a party somewhere in Jersey, so his partner from “Too Smooth” (later “Sounds from the Underground”) Fresh J filled in as a co-host. Eazy’s absence meant that Tone was given a full two hours on the wheels. And, man, was Tone in full promotion mode. Tons of great Trenton acts, special announcements about groups that were to become legendary, and even some MC Serch references. This really is a classic episode. So, side by side: Side 1  (10:05-10:48pm) The show kicks...

On March 12, 1992--a week after doing an extended six-hour episode of Raw Deal--G did a full 11 hour show (and then some since DJ X didn't show up, either) starting at 1pm and going until midnight. Eazy's car broke down in Philly, so G was running the show for the entire set.Features lots of bugging out, particularly as the night nears an end and the studio is full.

This tape starts at about 9:35pm. G spends much of the show busting on Eazy's clothes ("Yo, Eazy. Your clothes have expired. They need Super Action Tide" and "The collar on your shirt looks like a horse wore it") and uses it as a set-up for promoting BBC (right around the corner from Club Zero!) in Philly. Things get really good starting with the second airbreak on side B and through side C with lots of great aggressive, upbeat tracks, cuts, and some good interview segments...

The UndaGround Sound Mix Show broadcast on WXDU 88.7 out of Durham, NC. It was hosted by DJ Samps and Mike Nice and I believe David J also had some involvement with the show. Samps  is  still spinning on WXDU  every Friday night. He can also be found on Twitter  @deejaysamps . I remember communicating with Samps back in the day, as he was one of the few hip-hop DJs (college radio or otherwise) that was on the Internet back in ’94.

Great sets of music as summer 1992 gets underway. G announces that later in the night the Crusaders for Real Hip-Hop, BeFyne and Funk Family, and Courageous Chief will be coming up for Thursday Night Live and then they'll all be heading up to Stretch & Bobbito's show (which they discuss the following week ). Unfortunately, Chief showed up late and the rest of the crew didn't show up at all, so the potential Thursday Night Live didn't materialize. They discuss an upcoming show at Mahorn's...

I was surprised to come across this gem from Philly’s WDAS 105.3 FM in early 1989 (I’m guessing this is an episode of the “Rap Digest,” but I’m not 100% sure). I usually listened to DAS for classic soul, but when they did hip-hop, they did it well. Parrish Smith from EPMD calls in on a snowy winter day to discuss a show with Superlover Cee & Casanova Rud the following night in Philly, EPMD’s travels in that  country called Africa , and the upcoming album. They say to expect the...

One of the rare episodes where G ("Mr. Softee!!!") isn't in the studio until the very end of the show. During the first two airbreaks, Tone discusses getting the gas face after dissing Serch on stage. Tone shows a good sense of humor about it all by playing "Gas Face" after one of his own tracks (a love song I completely forgot about). At the end of side B into side C, Eazy pairs an EPMD instrumental with a Chill Rob G vocal, then a Chill Rob G instrumental with a De La Soul...

This is not just another old school radio show. The operating room shows from Dr. Dre are very hard to find. And this one is imo very special. It contains an interview with KRS and Scott La Rock (6 months before his death) about the bridge wars, one of the important chapters of hip hop history. Scott is dissing Mr Magic, Shan and the Juice Crew and KRS is talking about The bridge and the reason to write 'the bridge is over'. This is like a time capsule back to 1987. - Dutch

Apparently, I recorded over the first side of my  March 8, 1990 episode  with the last 40 minutes or so of a show I’m dating at June 7, 1990 (based on a reference to upcoming events that Candy Cane makes during one of the breaks). The week after this, the crew moved to Friday night at 10pm for the summer because Eazy M had a summer job that required the switch. They were on Fridays through (I believe) the third week in September 1990. Some good airbreaks here, with lots of jokes and Tone...

I've only ever had a couple of Wake Up Show tapes in my possession so was happy to see this one in the last batch of cassettes that Tobes hooked me up with. I was particularly pleased to find this treat on there though: Guru stops by the show to do a quick interview (just before Moment Of Truth came out) and then drops a few verses alongside a relatively unknown Eminem, before Defari steps up to the mic and then the Beatnuts get involved. Good times. Do things like this still happen anywhere...

This interview with the Jazz Poets Society aired shortly before I graduated from MWC and less than a week before my final show. DJ Q was responsible for bringing JPS up to her show ("The Phlavor") and she handled the first interview. I manned the music and the second interview (when I had to defend my Digable Planets review in the paper). (See also:  my review of the JPS album  in that weeks' issue of  The Bullet .)

It's Eazy M's 21st birthday (which is likely April 20th, making this Thursday April 19th). At the start of side B, G begs Eazy to let him have a regular set. At this point he was still primarily answering phones and co-hosting, but not spinning. MC Smooth joins the crew in the studio. The show finishes off with a dope set from Eazy M with some nice blends and cuts. Side A Holy Intellect... Poor Righteous Teachers Strictly for the Ladies (Radio)...

Here’s 45 minutes of Raw Deal from November 14, 1991, probably from 10:05-10:50pm. Some highlights include an EPMD St. Ides commercial, a heavily-echoed commercial for The Funhouse (a club in Philly) that assures partygoers that “all problems are resolved,” a nice remix of the Fu-Schnicken’s “Ring the Alarm,” some ill live Naughty By Nature (was this ever released on one of their albums?), an ad for a Naughty By Nature/Black Poets/Zulu/Courageous Chief show, and a shout-out to “A...

This may be the first special edition 11-hour episode that the Raw Deal crew did (though they did do a six hour New Year’s Eve show at one point). Celebrating their five-year anniversary, this special episode started at 1pm, but my tape starts at about 2:15pm. If my school day ended right about 2, I likely got home, came straight upstairs, and hit record. At the end of the 2:15pm side, a funny moment occurs when they play Busy Bee’s “Suicide” and refer to him as “one of the coolest...

Great Chuck Chillout episode from the spring of 1988 with plenty of classics alongside long-forgotten tracks ("Hot Pants," "My Rhythm is Kept"). Likewise, there are lots of great drops from legends and forgotten crews alike. Definitely a reminder how dope and genre-changing 1988 was. It's Chuck Chillout and he's live... understaaaaaand? 01 Intro Chuck Chillout theme (?)... Deuces Wild Top Billin (Teddy Ted Mix) (No Half Steppin)... Audio Two Fly Girl... Grandmaster Flash...

This tape kicks off with a drop by Ice-T and, later, features perhaps the laziest-sounding drop ever courtesy of KRS-One. This episode comes not too long after this previously posted episode where Easy M, G, and Tony D were still in transition from "Club Crush" to "Raw Deal." Here, we're firmly in "Raw Deal" territory. For you nerds who want to know how I calculated the date: G discusses having just seen Boyz 'N the Hood , which came out on Friday, July 12, 1991...

Here's another show from Funkmaster Flex. Notice that within a year's time the Chuck Chillout Show had moved from 98.7 KISS FM to WBLS. A solid show with lots of great tracks including some of the brand new hits of the time. I'm not sure if it's still in the show cause I edit out most commercial segments and chatter but Chuck Chillout accidentally calls Charles Oakley-- Charles Barkley. I know he refers to it still that's on this but not sure if the actual incident made the final version of...

This is the second half of the April 5, 1990 episode of Club Krush. Everybody is in the studio. Side B features an airbreak where Tone and Eazy bust on MC Hammer. Poor Righteous Teachers are in the house for a great mini-interview. This was the debut of the "Midnight Croon" version of "Rock Dis Funky Joint," which I completely geeked out for. Later, Tone talks about "that new thing from the phone system" where you can call someone back that hangs up on you. Side A...

RRR are extremely pleased to offer another previously unheard* Stretch & Bobbito Show from 1991. This is a full 90 minute tape, tweaked and remastered to make that compressed FM vibe, sound as bumpin as poss. Filled with treats from the time, all expertly mixed, blended and cut the f**k up by one of the finest DJs on the planet. DJ Stretch Armstrong takes doubles of virtually every tune, perfectly and succinctly tearin em all up, while Kurious and Bobbito go ‘live to five’ with studio...

No date on this tape but I'm going with early 1994 (could be late '93 though). Ladbroke Grove's Cash Crew are in the studio plus there's tunes by MOP, Wu Tang, Gang Starr and Big Daddy Kane. Jay The Sultan checks in from NYC for the rap report and drops a sneaky snippet of 'Life's A Bitch' over the phone and there's a some classics by EPMD, Ultimate Force and Eric B & Rakim. Lovely. - DJ Step One

Right now I only have the first 1 hour, 42 minutes of the show digitized and the rest may or may not exist, sadly.

This episode of the Q102 Hip-Hop Review is from May 15, 1994 (there’s a mention of it being the second day of  Black Expo U.S.A. ’94 ) and features Jay-Ski on the wheels, Mike Elliot & Shelly Shell hosting, and Lee Lava answering phones (props to Mike Elliot for giving so much shine to the dude answering phones). Some really good tracks chopped and sliced to perfection by Jay. This tape’s a little weird — side B of my tape seems to be the first part (labeled as side A here), yet...

I posted the Top 10 at 10 part of this years ago but it was only at 128kbps so here's the full 90 mins of that tape in better quality. Mobb Deep were in between albums and Prodigy still managed to be on 3 songs in the Top 10. Salaam Remi was on fire around that time too, with production on the Greg Nice and Fugees tracks (one an obscure indie 12", the other the lead single for The Score) and his dope remix of Fast Life for G Rap and Nas. Liking that Clark Kent remix of The Natural too......

The tracklist for this isn't entirely dissimilar to this one posted earlier so it's fair to say it's from the week before or after. Decided to post it up anyway because Tim goes into the Capital Rap Show archives not once but twice and pulls out an old Cash Money & Marvelous session and a freestyle by Chill Rob G, Queen Latifah and the Jungle Brothers, both of which I assume are from the late 80s or possibly 1990 in the case of the latter ( which I posted on its own years ago ).
